The Surface computer would allow her to interface with technology which is already in place at the high school. She would be able to receive the class notes and assignments on a daily basis, an assignmens could be modified for her low vision (due to OculoCutaneous Albinism) with the ability to complete and return them electronically. All of this from home, so that should she be absent for a medical reason, she would be able to keep up. Last year was extremely difficult and we are still trying to complete work, even as we are 2 weeks away from the start of Sophomore year.
The school would provide a laptop for her, however, it would not be able to interface to relay work, nor would it be allowed to be brought home. And there is some concern over whether it would continue to follow her after high school, if it even survived that long. If we were able to purchase the Surface ourselves, we would know we had a quality product that would last her many years, and we could be certain would follow her as her property. Thay is why it is really important to us to raise this money. Ideally, we need to do it before we get back to school Sept 4. But I will say just soon, please.
and thank you for your kindness and consideration. May God bless you always.
